It is true about smoking and parkinson's. But that does not negate all the negative effects of smoking.
I am not saying that the neurotoxic effects of stimulants are the only factor that should be considered when one decides weather or not to take one.
I do believe that the effects are real, and should be a consideration.
Nobody knows the net effect of taking a stimulant. Some studies suggest an improved adulthood outcome while others point to more complications, including and increased risk of depression.
